Spring Awakening Unveils First Headliners & Brand-New Festival Location


After months of speculation and fear of cancellation, Spring Awakening 2019 has come through in a big way. Dubbed the “largest Midwest all-electronic music festival,” the Chicago-based event was in hot water after announcing a location move to Douglas Park – a move that city officials were unaware of. However, the space they planned to use is set for heavy construction during the event dates. With the festival in doubt, a new plan had to be made fast.

Spending the previous three years at Addams/Medill Park near Lake Michigan, Spring Awakening Music Festival has finally secured a new home for the 2019 edition. Its new location? The fabulous (and spacious) Poplar Creek at 59-90 Entertainment District in Hoffman Estates, IL. This northwestern Chicago suburb more than doubles the size of Addams/Medill at over 27 usable acres.

SAMF will feature complimentary shuttles to the festival site, many nearby hotel accommodations, and, for the first time in its 8-year history, on-site GA Parking for festival attendees.

In addition to the massively upgraded venue, SAMF announced their first six headliners. Festival favorites DJ Snake, GRiZ, Illenium, Rezz, Zedd, and Martin Garrix will grace the Solstice and Equinox stages. While over 100 artists will be announced, this is a strong start for the revamped Spring Awakening Music Festival! The full lineup hits this Friday, March 15.

The event takes place June 7-9, and tickets are on sale now. Secure your spot today!
